About the name Calder

Calder is a name of Scottish origin that is usually found as a surname but can be used as a given name for a boy. It means "stream". Like running water over a path. Or perhaps "cold water"

(Note: I am not sure I feel comfortable giving "stream" as a meaning for Calder since Gaelic glas means stream. More research is needed here.)
(Further note: Calder feels like Caldera to me, related to Cauldron, cooking pot, a container for water. I can see the water connection but I am feeling it should be warmer.)
